“Formerly owned by Lord Glenconner (before he decamped to Mustique), Sugar Beach has been in the hands of the Myers family for the past few years, and has undergone enormous investment. This is evident throughout out the property where the byword has to be “luxurious colonial chic”. Rooms and suites are scattered throughout the huge grounds in plantation style cottages; some are beachside, some are up the steep hill verging on the rainforest behind. Every one is luxuriously appointed and surrounded by lush tropical gardens. The all white décor and furnishings are simply stunning and the beds are quite simply the most comfortable you’ll find anywhere. Bathrooms carry on the theme with Victorian style claw foot baths, and separate enormous walk-in showers. All have private patios and all have private plunge pools. Not forgetting all also come with their own private butler, who can be summoned at any hour via your dedicated mobile! The management has thought of everything - there are even shuttles (organised by the butler of course) to take you to dinner, the beach, the spa, the tennis courts…..This might all sound very grown up, but Sugar Beach is completely family friendly too. Accommodation is flexible and works very well for adults and children alike. Plus there are complimentary kids clubs catering for all ages offering a huge range of activities from table tennis to paddleboarding to treasure hunts. There are various dining options including beachfront casual, fine dining in what was the original plantation house (here you’ll discover antique wooden flooring and the original chandelier still in place) or sushi in the Cane Bar (they do great cocktails here too!). However the piece de resistance has to be Sugar Beach’s location. It is nestled between the two iconic Pitons and the views are simply jaw-dropping.”
